Proper Job is a really decent IPA – using some American Hops – it should by rights be a more American Style IPA – but seems to retain some English heritage and character.
It has a lightly hazy copper colour with a medium creamy off-white head which it retains for a little while with good lacing.
Aroma is cedar, herbal, citrusy and woody hops.
Flavour-wise, it has a lovely clean biscuit and toasted maltiness to it – with hints of grapefruit. This is all followed by medium hoppiness and bitterness, offering a clean dry finish.
Medium bodied and a perfect amount of carbonation for the crisp and refreshing factor – a well deserved BH rating of 3
First brewed in December 2005 for the St Austell Brewery Celtic Beer Festival, Proper Job is an authentic IPA brewed with Cornish spring water and malt made from a blend of malts including Cornish grown Maris Otter barley. A powerfully hopped golden bitter that explodes with citrus grapefruit flavours.
Proper Job is dedicated to the 32nd (Cornwall) Regiment who stoutly defended their garrison during the Indian Mutiny in 1857-58. In recognition of a ‘Proper Job’, Queen Victoria awarded the 32nd the honour of becoming a Light Infantry Regiment.
“Light, clear and refreshing with an assertive hop bitterness, Proper Job IPA is based on a traditional IPA recipe which makes it perfect for long, hot summer days.”
Ingredients: Cornish Spring water and malt made from 100% Cornish grown Maris Otter barley. Cascade, Chinook and Willmette hops. 5.5% ABV
